How Indoor Air Quality Affects You

How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You

Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, doesn’t it?

Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your house? If so, you might be shocked if you knew how many toxins you just inhaled, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…is that true?

How Indoor Air Quality Affects You

The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives indoors, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels found outside. Yikes! Now think about the fact that people breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so does your family. So does your pet.

When it comes to food and water, it’s trendy to go organic or upgrade your faucet with the latest filter, but how do we upgrade the air we breathe? Seriously, people, we can’t take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore.

It’s critical to take the time to assess quality of the air you breathe indoors. The benefits are:

  1. Keep you healthier. That’s right. And actually, 50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air according to the American College of Allergists.
  2. Lower? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air improves how efficient your heating and cooling system works. Want to enjoy a “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?”
  3. Protect your investment. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
